The Vengeance Paradox Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Draconian
1. The Vision (1:35)
2. The Oath (3:24)
Piss again all over your protest
another log added onto the fire

Give away your position in solace
to a role with no thanks or desire

A dark sight to behold
a cruel tale untold

A wretched growth in its place
to poison yourself with mistakes
Ends tied will only loosen in time
A hollow reflection forebodes you and I

No resolution in false restitution, betrayal in its place

I won’t bow or bend will to anybody
this cage can’t hold onto me
I won’t break or bend my will to any of this
darkness that is calling to me

The darkness is calling to me

I will take this
cold embracing
feel its shaping
changing me in eternal bliss

It shapes me in eternal bliss

On through the darkness a lost hope is found
in silence no longer the mute make a sound
break through the horror from which we were born
we'll burn through the ashes and break the old dawn

Marching ever forward to determined to look back
kicking up our hallowed ground press harder till it cracks

Marching ever forward to empowered to look back
the battle lines are drawn and in the end I’ll take it back

Marching ever forward too relentless to look back
weapons drawn in strength and number press for the attack

I won’t bow or bend will to anybody
this cage can’t hold onto me
I won’t break or bend my will to any of this
darkness that is calling to me

On through the darkness a light has been found
in silence no longer the mute now make a sound.
3. The March (3:17)
Lay down your arms to me
bare your throat for the sweet release

I will drain your life
tempered sacrifice

Now bow down for your honour
swear your devotion unto me
no more self-desire
live your life, then give it all to me

Now the blind shall see
as they draw their final breath
take your sins and walk away

March

Hands bound in gracious silence
a willing tool no need for violence

I will turn the knife
pain will not suffice

Now bow down for your honour
swear your devotion unto me
no more self-desire
live your life, and give it all to me

Now the blind shall see
as they draw their final breath
take your sins and walk away

March

All through the hollow you will follow me with pride
no doubt or hesitation, love will fill your eyes

No second guessing no doubts lay in your way
I am all knowing and to me you should give praise

I am the coming of the age you wished you've known
I'll swallow everything reaping what you've sewn

I'll spare you nothing smile and make my way
leave you in the dust telling yourself you'll be OK

I'll spare you nothing smile and make my way
I am all knowing and to me you shall give praise.
4. The Deed (3:43)
Stuck on the thought of regret
another day has come and gone

Lost out on another event
all in all is another gone

Broke my vow of silence today, I swore I'd never tell another soul
but beauty bested the beast in me and now I'm screaming in another hole

All that I had left, has been forsaken
all that I held best, has been left wasted

Eye for an eye
stand by and watch the world go blind
a dead pool of never ending pain is what you'll find

A lost tome written by the hand
that guides the spear through the heart of the earth

Foolish words spewing out of the mouth
with no intention, valour or worth

No, you are not safe from me

Now you'll be in debt to me forever
begging, keep you under lock and key

Watching as your light goes out for me

Bathe in your light as it fades
laugh as your life drains away

Now you'll be in debt to me forever
begging, keep you under lock and key

Now you'll be in debt to me forever
watching as your light goes out for me.
5. The Shift (6:10)
Promises made an oath sworn with pride
never to stray far from your side
I'll never stray far from your side

As the days grew longer, nothing much mattered to me
resentment was lead in the endless display

Shoulders where held down, the weight of the world as my crown
self-inflected apathy

I'd never seen a day
when life depends on me

Careless aggression gave way to obsession

I'd bow my head in loss, for a moment in time now lost
and I still await that old hour

Little one, innocent son
I swear I will always be here

No more waste in regret
accept the fate we have met

Begin again

Move away from the hate, fear, loss, bitterness
see through the haze rage fuels best

A lesson of mine, will be yours in time
how you prepare the duty is mine

I'll pave the way for you

Pave our way for you

And father I'll bury my anguish with you

Loss, nought to replace

Loss

Our time was short to most
but I've never felt as close
and I still await that old hour

Little one, innocent son
I swear I will always be here

What's now begun, won't be undone.
6. The Calm (4:21)
Veer away from the souls decay, a rotting hole born of dismay
trust burns and your own you betray, a life, lived, lost

A life lived lost

Now based on the sins of the father
duly passed onto the son
no more mistakes in my honour
the damage is done

A beast is born from regret
forged through the passage of time
the fate of the world have been reset
and chaos becomes my kind.

Tainted eyes, roll back to see inside
what's kept within this hollow lie

Lessons have changed, a plan re-arranged
And no one to hold on the line

This will bury you in time

I won’t fade to nothing

I won’t fade away

Too proud to just fade away

A life, lived, lost

Look at your fucking self

Veered away from what I know, what's left today tomorrow we owe
veered away from what I know, what's left today tomorrow we owe

You can't fight

Veer away, life force in decay.
7. The Panic (3:29)
No excuses left
to justify your theft now

The dead memories lingering longer fueled by regret

Lies lay beside, the excuses in your eyes
rage gives way to violence, and damns you for all time

No, more, see, what you, have done.

You're no hope at all

A dangerous field
left barren of life that you steal

I won't let your kind get away
vices will mount in the end you must pay

Lies lay beside, the excuses in your eyes
rage gives way to violence, and damns you for all time
No, more, see, what you've, done

Left alone at night with terror in your eyes
stuck within the rage
left alone at night no end at all in sight
accepting a life in a cage

Coward in life, living mistake, left you with nothing but shaming and waste

No, more, see, what you've, become

Left alone at night with terror in your eyes
the wolves with which you've laid
left alone at night no end at all in sight
bare teeth in the bed they have made.

Left alone at night disaster in your eyes
lost within the strain
left alone at night no more time to bide
accepting a life filled with hate.
8. The Justification (3:28)
Light another candle, throw it in my eyes
another act of fallacy hidden behind your smile

Like it's all the same, heard it all before
take away your crutch now you're knocking on death's door

No account for apathy, given it away
shut my ears to all your shit, won’t listen to what you say

No more lies, or games to call
your reason makes no sense at all

See all, end all, be all
and now you'll watch as I fall
no more empty pages
courses ran for ages into the wall

While you waste away, I'll beg for more

Twisted voices in my mind, whisper where to find
a hatred growing deep inside, and how to make it mine

Becoming the see all, end all, be all
and now you'll watch as I fall
no more empty pages
courses ran for ages into the wall

No more lies, or games to call, your reason makes no sense at all.

While you waste away, I'll beg for more

Becoming the see all, end all, be all
and now you'll watch as I fall
no more empty pages
courses ran for ages into the wall.
9. The Irony (2:58)
Into the vestibule with nothing but my pride
left in the empty isles where shadows cannot hide

Inherent doubts and fears no longer at my side
my body swept of filth and cleansed now in the tide

We are the end to come
to all that has begun
say goodbye to the setting sun
one for all and all for none

Now wipe the blood away that covers up your face
behold the prophets in illuminated grace

Hands raids towards the tower high above the storm
struck down the righteous few blessed to be reborn

The march of the damned, burns through the turf
no longer salvation but melting the earth

Waking disaster, that hides in your faith
no longer salvation that's left in it's wake

All hail the king of kings, saviour of the herd
fire dripping from his lips and ice forms on his words

The heavens open wide and swallow up the sun
arms wide in loving praise the damage has been done

We are the end to come
to all that has begun
say goodbye to the setting sun
one for all and all for none.
10. The Regret (4:02)
Step out of the mould, look at yourself
realise you're not who you thought and no one could tell

Now whittle away all the pieces, till everything that matters is gone
mind hanging from a thread, what feels so good can't be wrong

Walk the plains of existence, see there's nothing left for us
hollow structures give into weight, straw used as bricks fool now it's too late

The missing pieces won’t fall into place
the fount of contempt flows, now come have your taste.

Tried to abide all of your lies
to my face you hid poison thorns in sweetened disguise

Now whittle away all the pieces, till everything that matters is gone
mind hanging from a thread, what feels so good can't be wrong

Given everything heart, soul, mind and skin
dedicate to the cause

Lost my way again, now this is my sin
doomed to live what is left, with the thought

With the thought

Step out of the mould, look at yourself
realise you're not who you thought, and we all could tell

Now whittle away all the pieces, till everything that matters is gone
mind hanging from a thread, what feels so good can't be wrong.
